Kill Messages

I've written a handler which nudges a selected image when an arrow key 
is pressed.  The problem is if the user holds the arrow key down for a 
few seconds the messages get backed up.  When the user finally lets the 
arrow key up the object keeps nudging across the screen.

I've tried to stop the nudging with the keysDown() function but not 
having any luck.  I need some way to detect there are no keys down and 
kill any messages which have been backed up.
